MEMPHIS , Tenn. (AP)The Pro Football Hall of Famer has been hired as head coach of the Memphis franchise in the Alliance of American Football that will begin play next February.Memphis joins Orlando and Atlanta as teams in the new league overseen by another Hall of Famer, Bill Polian, and TV executive Charlie Ebersol. Singletary’s team will play home games in the Liberty Bowl.Singletary previously coached for three NFL teams, including a head-coaching stint with San Francisco in which the 49ers went 18-22. He was the anchor of some staunch defenses in Chicago as a middle linebacker Connor McGovern Jersey , and he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1998.”I took tremendous pride in leading, teaching and competing during my playing days, and that experience prepared me for my coaching career,” he said Thursday. ”I enjoy working closely with players and doing everything possible to set them up for success on and off the field. This is an opportunity to do that again at the professional level Khari Willis Jersey , and I’m excited to get started.”The Alliance will feature eight teams playing a 10-week regular season beginning Feb. 9, 2019 – the weekend after the Super Bowl – on CBS. There will be two playoff rounds and a championship game on the weekend of April 26-28.Polian is the head of football operations for the league. The longtime NFL general manager and executive helped recruit Steve Spurrier to coach the Orlando club and Brad Childress for Atlanta, with Michael Vick as an assistant.Now, the Alliance has Singletary.”Mike is a passionate Josh Allen Jersey , dedicated and intelligent leader,” Polian said. ”During his Hall of Fame career he played with an unmatched level of intensity that served as the catalyst for a historic, Super Bowl-winning defense (in the 1985 season). He brings the same leadership qualities to the sidelines. His experience as a player and head coach will be invaluable to Alliance Memphis players and will have them in position to succeed on and off the field.”Rosters will be culled from NFL cuts to the 53-man maximum after preseason, which Polian calls ”the core of our constituency”; collegians who have gone undrafted Jawaan Taylor Jersey , including underclassmen who have lost any remaining eligibility; players looking to return to the sport; and free agents from the CFL or elsewhere. The question of when Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones will get a new contract has been bandied about for the last year or so and the issue came back onto the radar when Antonio Brown got a new contract after his trade to the Raiders.Brown is now the highest-paid receiver in the league, but General Manager Thomas Dimitroff acknowledged last week that could change when Jones and the team come to an agreement about Jones’ next deal. On Wednesday, Dimitroff said that there’s no time frame in place to get that deal done while adding that conversations have been positive on that front.“We’ll continue to talk with both Julio and his representation,” Dimitroff said Josh Oliver Jersey , via the . “We have had really good conversations with them. There is no particular time on that. I’m not concerned about it, nor is he. We’ll get that figured out. … I know there is interest because of everything that’s going on with all of the receivers in the league. There are big numbers [being] talked about and a big situation there. Look, we feel good with our communications there.”Jones missed offseason work last year and was reportedly set to skip training camp before the Falcons revised his contract last July to give him $2.9 million more money than he was set to make. Jones has two years left on his current deal and is set to make a base salary of $9.6 million this season.
